July 14, 2013 | John Bayles | The Prologue of John: The Divine Son(John 1:3-4)

As we etch our way through the Prologue of the Gospel of John, it is our intention to take the needed time to understand John's teaching. Many years ago, as I watched the first lunar landing with my family (in black and white TV), a detail was repeated again and again by the commentators: "The precision of a lunar flight is critical. If the target (the moon) is missed by even a small fraction at the first, then the ship could miss the moon by thousands of miles." The same is true in our study of the scriptures. If we miss the foundational essence of the nature of Jesus Christ at the beginning, we will likely find ourselves either in a cult or confronting one that has missed this critical understanding.

As we follow John, let us continue to give ourselves to the diligence of detail, not losing sight of what we have discovered thus far. Today we will see how John is building an understanding of the revelation of who Jesus Christ is - a revelation that was given to him by Jesus Christ. We hear the term, the God-man so often. It is despised, rejected, or unknown to many who call themselves Christian today. Yet it is detailed here for all to see. May we, by the guidance of God the Holy Spirit see as we uncover again the mystery of the nature of Christ. The Son of God and the son of man.
